Rivolta Guitars

Evolutionary Design

The latest creation from acclaimed guitar builder and designer Dennis Fano, the founder of Fano Guitars and Novo Guitars. Fano has always wanted to make his guitars accessible to as many players as possible, and partnering with Mike Robinson of Eastwood Guitars was the perfect solution.

The Rivolta models feature the best elements of Fano’s well-known designs, and utilize Eastwood’s established production facilities and worldwide distribution network.

The designer's vision is realized without compromise.

From Fano's first design sketch, to a CAD drawing and detailed rendering, Rivolta Guitars are brought to life with precision fabrication and old world craft, with ultimate approval coming from Dennis himself.

About Dennis Fano

Dennis cut his teeth repairing instruments at Matt Umanov Guitars in NYC from 1995-2000. He launched Fano Guitars in 1996 and started building instruments full-time in 2000. He introduced the award-winning and influential “Alt de Facto” guitar series in 2006.

Needing a new challenge, Dennis created Novo Guitars in 2014 to further refine his “timeless modern” design aesthetic.

Dennis has built instruments for such musical icons as Andy Partridge, Dave Gregory, Jeff Tweedy, Nels Cline, Johnny Marr, Walter Becker and Matthew Sweet.
